2020 NEWS: We are still serving individual retreatants and allowing for extra time and cleaning in between a hermitage’s usage.

Do you need a time & place…

… for privacy and silence?

… for prayer and solitude?

… for renewal and serenity?

Guests can reserve a hermitage for a minimum of 2 nights (special weekly rates available). Call or text 636-475-3697 from 10 am – 2 pm or click on “Request a Reservation” in the above menu.

Come visit our holy oasis! Be refreshed and refocus on Christ’s heart during this difficult time.

We also ask guests to maintain appropriate space from one another.

Vision of Peace Hermitages offers a quiet setting, surrounded by nature… a unique place for you to slow down, catch your breath, and find that still small voice within you.

Just thirty minutes south of St. Louis lies a place of peace, serenity, and natural beauty… a convenient and ideal location for an individual or small group retreat.  

We invite you to explore this unique spiritual oasis.

“Be still… and know that I am God.”  – Ps. 46:10

We ask guests to be willing to follow some new policies in place to try to ensure the safety of all those who visit our solitude.

Our Vision:

Vision of Peace Hermitages will provide an environment where individuals can encounter the Triune God.

Our Mission:

Vision of Peace Hermitages, a Catholic retreat center, offers hermits of all faiths a place where natural beauty, solitude, and simplicity provide a prayerful atmosphere in which hermits may encounter the living God

We currently wait at least 24 hours in between the usage of a hermitage to try to ensure greater safety for our guests. We are not a hospital or hotel and we still ask guests if they are willing to clean their hermitage and pray for the next person when they depart. *Staff then go in 24 hours later and disinfect with bleach water. We do the best we can and you may choose to come here at your discretion.
